中心總監的話

 
親愛的弟兄姊妹、朋友:
 
「我們原是祂的工作,在基督耶穌裡造成的,為要叫我們行善,就是 神所預備叫我們行的。」 (以弗所書2:10)
 
多年前,我參加四百米接力賽,我深知是項賽事中,交接棒技術是奠定勝負的關鍵,因此我們全力以赴練習, 務求萬無一失; 即使付出了最大努力,我們發現完美的技術說來容易做時難。當我們在比賽中「跌棒」時,教練每每鼓勵我們,即使奧運選手也會犯同樣的錯誤啊!
 
「一代過去 ,一代又來 ,地卻永遠長存 。」(傳道書1:4)
上帝的工作需要承傳,新一代要起來,接受上主的召命,繼往開來延續神的事工, 近年,我經常思量這課題, 又祈求神派遣適合的工人來參與我們的團隊,望有生力軍接上這棒, 神亦提醒我要常存信心。「你要專心仰賴耶和華 ,不可倚靠自己的聰明 ,在你一切所行的事上 , 都要認定祂 ,祂必指引你的路 。」(箴言3:5-6)
 
我 們熱烈歡迎 Winnie 和 Cherrie 加入晨光輔導團隊! 我深信藉着她們的恩賜、才能和經驗,定能為晨光帶來更多生氣和嶄新意念,更能有效地發展事工及服務社區。感謝你多年來代禱支持,請你繼續記念我們的事工和同工們,特別為新的團隊成員代禱。
 
請繼續記念由馮約瑟和馮陳念恩博士主理的輔導課程,並為參與者祈禱;該課程旨在培養更多教會領袖,成為教會下一代導師。願上帝保守他倆身心康泰,繼續退而不休地服侍,在未來幾年為教會培訓更多導師。
 
 上帝創造我們,並預備我們,好讓世世代代成全祂的工作。(以弗所書2:10)更祈盼我們生生不息,並薪火相傳, 在人群中發放光芒,照亮别人,榮耀上帝。(馬太福音5:16)
 
主恩常偕!

A Word from the Centre Director

 

Dear brothers, sisters and friends,
 
“For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” (Ephesians 2:10)
 
I once ran in a 400m relay team years ago. I learned that passing on the baton to the next teammate was perhaps the most onerous task that would determine the ultimate success of the team in a race. We did a lot of practice in order to perfect the baton-passing skills so as to maximize the chance of success. Even with the best effort, we found that making a perfect baton-change was always easier said than done.  When we sometimes dropped the baton in a race, our coach would graciously remind us that even the Olympic runners would make the same mistake!
 
“A generation goes, and a generation comes.” (Ecclesiastes 1:4) As for our ministry, successfully passing on the baton from the older generation to the younger generation of workers has constantly been on our mind in recent years. Each generation needs to have workers willing to accept His calls to serve and do the works He has planned for us. We have been praying continually that God would send more of His workers to this ministry at the time of His choosing. We always trust that He has the best plan for the future of this ministry, as we are reminded that we should “trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to Him, and He will make your paths straight.” (Proverbs 3:5-6)
 
We are thankful that Dr Winnie Chan and Mrs Cherrie Liu will be joining our counselling team this year. We warmly welcome them into the ministry. They have committed their lives to His calling to serve others as counsellors. We trust that with their different talents, skills and experiences they will bring new energy and ideas to serve the community and to help develop the ministry further. 
 
We are thankful for your unfailing prayerful support over the years and ask you to continue to remember our works and our workers, especially the new team members, in your prayer.
 
We would also ask for your prayer for the participants of this year’s Mentoring course conducted by Rev Joseph Fung and Dr Nancy Fung of our Pastors Renewal Ministry. The course aims at training up more church leaders to become mentors for the next generation in their church. May God grant Rev and Dr Fung good health, as they continue to serve fervently well into their retirement age, so that they will train up many more mentors for the churches in the coming years.   
 
God creates and prepares us for His works (Ephesians 2:10), from one generation to another. We pray that our light will continue to shine before others and that people may see our work and glorify our Father in heaven (Matthew 5:16).
 
Blessings & Grace to you!
 
Gerald Cheung           
Centre Director
